St. James Cathedral
65 East Huron Street, Chicago, IL - 60611
Phone: 312 - 787 7360

The church building was dedicated in September 1871. On October 9, the second day of the Great Fire, the church was destroyed. Just 4 days after the fire services were held and church began to be rebuilt.
" Although the decor of the church was modified several times; the 1985 restoration by walker Johnson and the firm Holabird and Root returned the original 100-year old patterns and 26 colors to the interior to provide what an expert calls the best example of Victorian stencil work in the world."
The church has beautiful windows.

I joined the Holy Communion here ...
